The hull and deck are constructed of Isophthalic acid resin and tri-axial knitted fiberglass fabric. The skinning layer is 100% vinylester. Above the water line, the hulls and deck are cored with 3⁄4″ Corecell foam, except for hardware attachment points. All coring is vacuum bagged to ensure 100% adhesion. Below the water line, hulls are solid fiberglass. The two main bulkheads are composite and clad in Cherry veneer. The forward and aft beams are composites of balsa coring, tri-axial and unidirectional cloth. All bulkheads are taped to the hull and deck using x-weave knitted fabric that gives up to 50% more strength than standard cloth. There are two forward watertight compartments, one inside each bow locker. Standard fin keels have a sacrificial section, allowing for substantial damage to them without affecting hull integrity. The hull is treated with Interprotect 2000 epoxy barrier coat and Sea Hawk Islands 44 1005 TF harder-ablative bottom paint.

Engine Overview

Diesel engine hours meters are mounted in the salon, inside the panel behind the TV. The original Yanmar meters failed, and until new meters could be installed, the hours were calculated from the ship’s log. When the new meters were installed, the starboard engine had 1353 hours, and the port engine had 1468 hours, the totals of the last Yanmar meter readings plus the interval hours taken from the ship’s log. These numbers are posted next to the new engine hours meters for your reference.

  • Twin 29 HP Yanmar 3YM30 Diesels, shaft drive (11⁄4″ shafts) Engine hours as of March 2024: Port: 2329 hours; Starboard: 2244 hours.
  • Diesel engine hours meters are mounted inside the panel behind the TV. The original Yanmar meters failed. When the new meters were installed, the starboard engine had 1353 hours, and the port engine had 1468 hours. The meters post these figures for reference.
  • The alternators are Balmar 60-YP-70-SV with ARS-5 external, multistage, programmable voltage regulation, alternator and battery temperature monitoring, and the ‘small engine option,’ which allows manual reduction of field current to obtain an extra 0.5 – 1.0 shaft HP from the engine when needed. This option is switched at the helm.
  • Racor dual 75/500 MAXD fuel filters are provided for each diesel engine with a valve to select between the active and the backup filter.
  • In-line vacuum gauges are mounted on the fuel filter manifolds.

Climate Control

Air-conditioning is by Cruisair. There are two 6500 BTU units, one in the master cabin and the other in the aft guest cabin. In addition, there is one 18,000 BTU unit that serves the salon and forward guest cabin.

  • The 6,500 BTU units work fine. They heat and cool, and the fans work in high and low settings.
  • The 18,000 BTU unit in the saloon doesn’t work. We have been told that the reversing valve has been seized. This is because we essentially never used the AC.
  • The ductwork is all in good repair.
